Slice it, batter it, and fry it. Goes well with eggs for breakfast.

It's practically essential to almost all Hawaiian recipes, it goes well with papaya. I rarely get it that often because it's become mind bogglingly expensive! Almost 5$ for a tiny can? Dollar store has a generic version but who's brave enough to try THAT?

Re: How ways can you cook spam?

The Dollar Store version is bacon flavored and is not bad... Fried almost crispy it tastes fine. Just warmed though is not to my liking. I prefer food with texture. Spam (name brand) also comes in foil packages (one slice) which works well when I want just a bit of it.

It's a convenience food... something to eat that doesn't require a lot of thought or effort. Salty so when cooked then if you warm a package of mixed fruit (fruit cup -- comes 4 to the pkg at the grocery store) ... well, it's not bad at all. I've added peaches, mixed fruit and pineapple at various times. Served with rice it's okay -- filling and a bit different than the usual stews.

Re: How ways can you cook spam?

It is actually pretty good if you cut it super thin (think bacon) and sear in skillet on high like frying bacon. No need to batter or season. Cook until lightly browned and crisp around edges. I'll bet it won't last on any boat despite the frowns and groans as you open the can.

hey Bob, that's the best thing I've heard lately! I thought that you and I were about the same age, but if being your age means that I like Spam... well, I guess I must really be younger!

Seriously, can't stand the stuff. Had quite enough as a kid during the war. When we are in the islands we sometimes resort to tinned Corned Beef, but draw the line at Spam.

Each to his own...

Cheers,

Jim

I'm with you Bob. I was in Hawaii for five years ate it every way. But, my favorites are SPAM cheese burgers and Fried crispy with Mac & Cheese.

Fry it, bake it, eat it straight from the can.

My favorite is mixing spam in your rice as you cook it.

Also I love spam with mayonnaise......
Well.................for me there may be a hundred ways to cook it but I know of not one way to eat it.

If you bake it at a long time at a low temperature it will turn into a brick that makes a dandy doorstop or shim.

Re: How ways can you cook spam?

Grew up in Hawaii, every time I think of spam I think of one of the dishes my mom would make- Grilled Spam with grilled pineapple, ( pineapple slice and spam slice the same thickness) adding a sweet element is yummy.

Re: How ways can you cook spam?

One of our favourites is to BBQ it basted with teriyaki sauce and the thin sliced into sushi rolls

Re: How ways can you cook spam?

Funny I just had some.

My brother asked my to dog/house sit last week. When I arrived there was a bottle a bourbon and a can of Jalapeno Spam on the counter. One thing leads to another and a half bottle of bourbon was gone and very shortly after that so was the spam.

I love and hate my brother.

Re: How ways can you cook spam?

Cut into 1/2" cubes and fry in dry skillet until browned on all sides. Add chopped onions, chopped celery, chopped bell peppers, dried red chile flakes, oregano and black pepper to taste. Stir in skillet for 3 minutes. Add a can of chopped tomatoes and continue cooking for a few minutes. Add chopped parsley and whatever else you might like. Stir in cooked rice until have a good consistency/ratio of ingredients for jambalaya. Serve and top with pepper sauce if you like spicy foods.

Can make the same dish using regular smoked ham and/or good link sausage cut into cubes.

I grew up in SE Texas close to the Louisiana border and Cajun food as well as Mexican food is in my blood. Spam works in this dish when good ham and/or link sausage is not available. Heck, I wish Spam were available in Turkey where we are now. I miss all forms of pork.
